I have had a goal all along to complete a half marathon in late 2011/early 2012. In the last few weeks, that goal has changed quite a bit. Sarah and I have officially decided to make the Run for the Warriors in Jacksonville, NC our first half marathon. I am so excited! I am slightly concerned with the date (May 14), as Jason and I will be on a cruise/at Disney World from May 5 through 12. Oh well, I am gonna do it.
I think that I am finally really ready to conquer a half marathon, mentally and physically. It was a lofty goal when I mentioned it on my Facebook last May. It was unrealistic, in my mind, when I started the NCRC running program in July. I wasn't in any mental or physical shape to work toward such a goal several months ago. Now, after seeing just how far I have come, I am ready. I am ready to look this challenge in the face and defeat it.
